** FOR PARENTS **
With the help of augmented reality (AR) technology, Toy Car RC allows you and your kids to experience an interactive simulation of driving a virtual remote controlled (RC) car through the real world. In order to work, the app requires that your device’s camera recognize a target image. You can print out the free, pre-made target images included in the app or create temporary ones by taking pictures with your device’s camera.
** PLAY TIP **
Toy Car RC is specifically designed for kids 6+ years old. At this age, kids love making up their own stories. We recommend that you print out different targets and place them in different rooms around the house. Then, let your kids go from room to room with the device (“Spaceship”) while imagining Wheely’s adventures in the different worlds.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start your engines!
